How to Fix Detroit in 6 Easy Steps

Here’s the plan:
•The federal government (in writing) forbears taxes, regulations, laws, and impositions for a hundred years to the area of the current municipality of Detroit and to all persons and commercial entities resident there.
•The government of the state of Michigan forbears taxes, regulations, laws, and impositions for a hundred years to the area of the current municipality of Detroit and to all persons and commercial entities resident there.
•All municipal government agencies within Detroit are disbanded.
•All state and federal offices within the city of Detroit are disbanded.
•The federal government guarantees that entry and exit to/from Detroit will remain unchanged from the current conditions, and that no obligations will be placed upon residents of Detroit in any other place.
•Federal and state governments immediately cease all payments to residents of Detroit. (They may resume payment to those persons if and when they are no longer resident in Detroit.)

The truth, of course, is that the state and fed guvs will never agree to a plan like this one, for a single reason:

Because they fear it would succeed.

They’ll let every last person in Detroit rot before they’ll let a group of producers live free of their chains.

Detroit returned to its natural state would expose the great lie of the government game – that we can’t survive without them.

Abolish all trade agreements

Abolish all trade agreements and use only bilateral trade agreements. That will fix everything.

1. eliminate all gun laws and

1. eliminate all gun laws and laws against self defense and property.
2. let individuals and businesses purchase the dirt cheap property of Detroit and allow them to defend their persons, property and businesses with lethal force, with or without help from city agencies.
3. allow people who can't afford rent to be evicted, whether by court or private agents. move all public housing, rent subsidies, and govt assistance to some other city.
4. allow private security or neighborhood organizations to stamp out crime and violence, gangs, etc., that result from the elimination of public assistance and subsidies for the indigent and criminal population.
5. allow a free market in property, freedom of contract and association for rental units,businesses, private or locally organized schools, etc.
6. watch Detroit return to civilization and multiply in property value while crime plummets and business resumes activity.

1-6 can be condensed into 1) replace the population of Detroit with another population not dependent on government services and shielded from justice by an inefficient system of controlling and punishing crime.
